Vells (1140) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - SEP 29, 2013
Intense roasted malts, coffee, awesome chocolate.. dunno.. I have tried more chocolaty brews, but this one was kinda bullseye for what I like, licorice , bit fruity. Smooth Nicely balanced brew. Ofc.. its not very close to iconic beers, but anyways.. pleasantly enjoyable
